    (2003 Vintage) The spectacular 2002 Shiraz is a fully blended barrel sample scheduled to be bottled in October. It was produced from one-third of the 2001's yields, which is reflected in its extraordinary concentration and intensity. An inky/purple color is accompanied by gorgeously sweet aromas of blueberries, blackberries, and vanilla. Full-bodied, with thrilling texture, tremendous levels of glycerin, and a viscous, seamless, lush finish, it will provide sumptuous drinking during its first 7-10 years of life. The 15% alcohol is cunningly concealed beneath a wealth of extract and glycerin.
